Specifically macOS. These features would be extremely useful.

 

Also, I noticed that when the client tries to autoupdate on macOS the process launches DropboxMacUpdater.app which in turn mounts a Volume that contains the update in a path which is randomized and attemtps to launch .dbx_installer.app

 

For security purposes I do not allow end users to launch applications from mounted volumes, causing them to view repeating prompts that say that they do not have permission to execute the .dbx_installer application.

 

As a temporary measure I have blocked DropboxMacUpdater from running, but I would like clients to autoupdate or at least manage said updates.

Hi @jdepablo!

 

I just dropped by to let you know that this idea is going to need some additional support before we share your suggestion with the team.

 

For that reason, I've updated the status here to encourage more users to back you up!

 

Take care and thanks for using Dropbox!
